This is a long article, I'll cut and paste the relevant section here (BTW, this is not me!):

"I've taken it upon myself to start an organisation called MLOP, the "Movement for the Liberation of Old Papers". What I do is hack into restricted websites, download the documents I'm interested in, and then use my favourite open-source paint program to remove the copyright statements from each page. Next I assemble the pages into one single pdf file and upload it to the Internet Archive, where it will become universally available to both researchers and citizens."

Good way to sink archive.org: post copyrighted materials here then cue the lawyers :(
